Featured Artist: Linda Bachman

During the seven weeks of '"Size Matters" we'll focus on individual artists here on our blog. Every week, several artists will be featured. Today, we're pleased to introduce to you: Linda Bachman.

I am a mixed media artist with a passion for fiber art and designing contemporary art quilts.

Nature in all its glorious colors and shapes has been a wonderful source of inspiration and lends itself to a beautiful palette with unlimited possibilities for art quilts.

My work is abstract, rich in color and many times a combination of hand dyed and surface designed fabrics mixed with commercial fabrics when needed.  Many of my pieces are embellished with beads, fibers and other found objects. This tends to give them an organic feel.
